As a former educator I know first hand just how tight a classroom budget can be. I also know that there is never enough time in the school day to get everything done. So when parents donated supplies or offered to volunteer their time, it meant the world to me! If you’re wanting to help your child’s teacher this year, try one of these three ways to make a difference in your child’s school. And be sure to print out the free Box Tops collection sheet!

Make a difference in your child's school with these three tips and by collecting Box Tops for Education. Plus, be sure to print this free Box Tops Collection Sheet to help you keep up with the Box Tops your family collects!

3 Ways to Help Your Child’s School

Volunteer Your Time

One of the biggest ways you can help your child’s teacher is by volunteering. Ask your child’s teacher what you can do to help. It may be that she needs someone to make copies, or perhaps read a story so she can gather her materials for the next lesson. Perhaps you can help with class parties or chaperone a field trip.  Even if you can only offer thirty minutes a month, every little bit helps!

Send Old Books, Games, Toys, etc.

Teachers often have to buy classroom supplies using their own money. I can remember spending hundreds of my own dollars to ensure my students got the education they deserved. Look around your home and collect books, toys, dress up materials, games and other items that can be used in the classroom and donate them to your child’s teacher. If she can’t use them for her particular class, she will find a teacher that can.

Collect Box Tops for Education

If you have a school-aged child, then I am sure you’ve heard about Box Tops for Education. These small pieces of packaging can make such a big difference!  Simply collect Box Tops for Education tabs found on products most of us already use, then send them to school with your child throughout the year. The schools can then turn the Box Tops in and get money for books, supplies, technology, and more! It’s really as simple as shop, clip, send, and earn.

I know that my daughter's school gets so many things by collecting those box tops. It's really cool. I just didn't realize how many different products had them. I will have to keep a better eye out for them in the future.
